I asked the receptionist if Judith was there and thankfully she was in the HOUSE! When I saw Judith through the window tears filled my eyes as did hers and we embraced each other and our miracle baby Jackson. For those of you who do not know, Judith was our genetic counselor at MFM. Judith gave us the hard facts about omphaloceles, chromosomes, trisomy's, amnios, SUPPORT, good news, and did I say SUPPORT?!!
Judith showed Jackson off to everyone who knew us, which was everyone in the office. Jackson was pretty much a rockstar when he was in the womb Omphaloceles are so rare that when I arrived for my first appointment everyone already knew who I was before I had even met anyone. Everyone was elated to meet Jackson especially Judith and Dr. Matthews. Judith told me that when she heard I was here she went around telling everyone that, "We have a visit!" It was great to let everyone see the little baby they all took care of when he was in my belly. I told Judith that I would keep her up to date, showed her his belly, and told her that I would be happy to talk to anyone who ever goes through this diagnosis too.
MFM Thank you!
